Odds are good that a few of you read this headline and thought, “Wait, there’s a Mortal Kombat reboot in production?” It’s true! Despite mixed success as a feature film and a web-series, Warner Bros. has decided to once again chase that sweet video game industry money with a big screen remake of the popular video game franchise. James Wan  —  who joined the project all the way back in 2015 as the executive producer  —  recently described the film as the fantasy version of Enter the Dragon, expressing a great deal of enthusiasm for the universe that he and the Mortal Kombat screenwriters had created.

Mortal Kombat has an odd history of adaptations — there was the 1995 film directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, followed by the sequel in 1997 and two short-lived TV series. In recent years, the classic video game found new live-action life via a web series, which was being used to hopefully launch a new film. That film never really got off the ground, but a new movie is being planned with one of our most prized studio directors on board to produce.
